I usually just kiss his forehead and tell him good-bye. He’s often aware that I’m leaving, even tho he’s half asleep, so it’s a good compromise. He usually does the same for me, I think, but I’m a heavy sleeper so I’m not 100% sure. ^_^

Mr Happily has NEVER left me without kissing good-bye. He leaves for work at 4:45am (while I am still sleeping) and last thing before he leaves he always comes over to my side of the bed & kisses me goodbye.

Mr. Powder Puff and I are on a fairly similar schedule. We wake up around the same time, but I always leave before him.

We ALWAYS say goodbye with a kiss and an, "I love you" no matter if the other person is still in bed or not. I would feel weird if we didn’t, and I think it’s just a nice way to start the day. 🙂

If one of us is still in bed, the other will just come give a hug and kiss before leaving. If we are both awake, we hug and kiss by the door before we leave.

Sometimes, because I loathe work, I get back into bed with him, just for a while, before I go. Leaving for work is very hard!!

I don’t think it’s rude, I think it’s very sweet, to kiss and hug goodbye even if they are still in bed.

We always give each other hugs and kisses and wish each other well for our day ahead. Our work schedules vary and we are so attached to each other that its nice to have that moment before either one of us leaves the other.

Oh, and we always make a point to say "I love you" no matter what. My mom’s always said "make all your ‘later dude’s good ‘later dude’s so you never have any regrets." So I always want to know if the worst should happen the last thing we said to each other was "I love you."

Well we work the same shift. But I have to get up an hour before he would have to but he still gets up with me, goes and makes my lunch and what-ever I would need for my 24 hours shift. He then makes sure I have everything ( I forget things so easily) I get his uniform ready and laid out. We finish getting ready.  He then walks me to my truck kisses me and hugs me. As I am pulling out of the driveway I honk three times( I-LOVE-YOU) and he holds up two fingers! That is our mornings! Every morning!  I am spoiled…. Awwww…

For a while, my Fiance and I were on opposite schedules.  He had to work from 4pm to 4am.  We were always seeing each other in passing, or saying goodbye while one of us was sleeping.  We both would feel slighted if we didn’t wake each other up for big smooches goodbye!  In fact whenever we say goodbye we give a big hug and a smooch before we walk out the door!

He works days and I work nights ( afternoon really but I’m a night owl anyways) . I can say that 99.9% of the time he’s awake before I am . But he always says goodbye , usually he kisses my forehead and i mumble out "love you" but I’m usually not quite awake.

He wakes up before me.  I sleep while he’s in the shower and start waking up to get ready when he kisses me on the forehead to leave for work.

What I don’t understand, is that he is in an industry where he doesn’t have to go to work early… but he’s such an early bird that he does it anyway.  I’m such a stinking night owl, that mornings are always a struggle for me!

My hubby usually is up and gone before I even wake up.  So, he’ll kiss me really hard and if I don’t wake up he’ll do it again.  Then, he’ll say "I LOVE YOU" really loudly so it can get me out of my sleep coma.  I’ll usually open one eye and say "I love you" back, then he’s off.  No matter what, though, we always leave with a kiss and those magic words because you never know if you’ll seem someone again.

I’m always awake when he goes to work, because he leaves at 10pm, so we hug and kiss at the door… he prays over me the same little blessing that he said every night when we parted before we were married, and I say "I love you, be safe." LIke liz.smith, I ALWAYS say I love you before he leaves… been doing that with my parents and siblings for years now, because I’m always paranoid that something will happen and I want the last thing said to be "I love you."

Oh, and I am still working on getting a job, but I imagine that I will be getting up and showering as he’s going to bed, and then I’ll kiss him "goodnight" and tuck him in before leaving for work.

We’re on the same schedules… but if I leave and for some reason he is still in bed, I give him a kiss. If I’m still in bed (rarely happens) he doesn’t bother me if he thinks I’m sound asleep. But he sees me up, he definitely snuggles in for a kiss.
